I am an independent software consultant specializing in the .NET platform and big data (analysis, visualizations, and nosql). I live and work in Orlando, Florida. I've been writing code since I was in 6th grade, and started on .NET when it was brand new. I enjoy learning new ways to write elegant code, and I'm on StackOverflow because I have received a ton of help by browsing the posts over the years. Hopefully I can contribute something back.
